Hardware / Re: OS/2 on Virtualbox with 8 COM ports
« on: March 15, 2021, 08:21:33 pm »
Hello,
I ask them and this is the answer:

"
That is some very old equipment and OS that you are running.

Unfortunately the NEO card does not support OS/2.
This is our only serial card and even all of our network products do not support OS/2."

If you had the source code for the CC application, it could be modified and recompiled to use a different communication method to the PEP hardware.

That’s not good. Maybe this will be the stop point for my project.
I hope to find configuration in some .ini file...
I see there’s DIGI folder and I think is there were I must put the new board drivers, maybe renamed as the orginial DIGI XALL.SYS...

As I said earlier, the StarTech PCI 8-port card works great with OS/2.
Neil, trying to avoid misunderstanding by reading your previous posts again: StarTech PCI 8-port works, but StarTech PCI Express 8-port doesn't.

It’s seems Startech doesn’t produce PCI board anymore....
Only PCIe are available.
But the problem is that OS/2 has no drivers for PCIe slot?

In bottom of the page You can download all drivers. It’s possible to install the one for windows and make your checks without having the board?

What do you think about this? It has DOS drivers...
And it has also this note "marked as a project supported operating system. Please contact us if you have any further need"

Hi

I will like to solve the question:
- Which modern 8 Port serial card works on ArcaOS-OS/2 ?
By modern, I may refer to PCI and PCI-e that are available for sale today.

Update: I checked Amazon to see some options, but it is kind of hard to get some device to test those with OS/2.
- Syba SY-PEX15019 PCI-Express RS-232 Serial 8-Port Card with OXPCIe958 Chipset  - $60.66 (Chipset)
- StarTech.com 8-Port PCI Express RS232 Serial Adapter Card - PCIe RS232 Serial Card - 16C1050 UART.  - US$ 164.99 (Website)
- IO CREST 8 Port DB9 Serial RS-232 PCI-e x1 Controller Card with Low Profile Bracket SY-PEX15067  - $102.99  - (Website)

Regards

As I said above, I have tested the StarTech board above and it does not work.

But do you never found a board that works?
Regards

Hi Danielle

I wrote this little page with the information you let us know.
- Novellus Gasonics PEP Iridia DL Plasma Asher

Can it be possible for you to take some pictures of the OS/2 software, so I can also include it to the gallery? What is the name of the software it uses?

Regards

Hi Martin,
here's the main page of the GUI

So this could be right?

I tried the StarTech PCIe serial cards a few years ago and they do not work at all. If you are a device driver writer, there are a few changes needed. This would be a good card to have support added.

Did you find the right hardware at least? 😬

It would be great to see a close up of the chips used. From there you can read the chip spec.
If you could return it then you might to give it a try.

Hi guys,
this morning when I arrived at work I found a surprise.... the pc was started !
Of course I need to install the mouse drivers, and it's works with USB mouse and keyboard !!!
Next step is to test it with the machine net (as you can see it searching for it).
And then I need to find a compatible 8 COM Ports Pci board with low profile. Maybe I will ask directly to DIGI if they have new products.
For now THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH !!!
Regards
Daniele

Hi Martin,
I download the zip file for mouse.
The instruction tells to run install.exe, but it's not present in the unzipped directory.
I must use the only one exe that is included?
